Unemployment in Chile

Chile Unemployment | Economic News & Forecasts

Chile - Unemployment

Recent data shows that annual economic growth eased in Q1, with private consumption, public spending, fixed investment and export momentum all softening. Moreover, activity contracted on a quarter-on-quarter basis. Turning to Q2, the economy shrank in month-on-month terms in April. However, this was purely due to weaker mining output, as non-mining activity expanded. In particular, consumer spending was robust—notwithstanding surging inflation and interest rates—with the reduced incidence of Covid-19 cases likely playing a role. Meanwhile, business sentiment averaged lower in April–May relative to Q1, hinting at more subdued investment. In politics, in mid-May the constituent assembly finished drafting the new constitution. The text enhances the role of the state, but should broadly safeguard Central Bank independence and private mining rights. A referendum on the document is set for 4 September.
